That's a good thing. More milk, butter, cream, cheese, ghee, and labour.

I thought the Americans would be much better shooters!
This is really a disappointing result. Even toddlers are apparently there better shooters ....

But no bystanders were injured. So it seems like they were at least trying to aim.

Amazing. 100 shots fired, not one innocent person hurt. If only our cops used that must discretion.

This mostly seems like a victimless crime.

Don't regular people ride motorcycles? I thought biker gangs were an urban myth.

You should start one in India. You could call yourselves "Shiva's Lingams" or something.

There are plenty of motorcycle "clubs" /groups and are mostly populated by middle-aged fat men who're riding a motorcycle for the first time and they're rich.

I'm deliberately not part of any group.

The main reason I like to ride is the solitude and I've ridden to many cities alone. Why would I want to ruin that?
